The Medical School at Oxford no longer teaches anatomy through cadaveric dissection. Instead, the Pre-Clinical course uses a combination of practical classes exploring prosections of human cadaveric material, prepared by teaching staff and surgeons from nearby hospitals, living anatomy classes in which students investigate functional anatomy using themselves as subjects and computer-assisted learning exercises. In prepartion for entry to clinical school, students also take a separate three-week course, entitled Principles of Clinical Anatomy, at the end of their third year.
